Large Vintage Persian Inlaid Jewellery Box

This is a beautiful large Persian jewellery box, dating to the 1930s/40s. It has an unusual eye-catching hexagonal shape and beautiful micro mosaic inlay. The inlay is made up of tiny pieces of stained wood and bone. This has created a multi floral/star pattern which covers a large area of the box.

There are thin strips of inlay bordering the floral decoration, plus contrasting plain strips of various woods and bone.

The inlay has beautiful painted gold highlights and the box has been varnished to protect the decoration.

The lid has a turned metal, templar shaped finial, and a ruffled red velvet cover on the inside.

The interior has a single large compartment, lined with red velvet and salmon pink silk. There is a thick glass panel to the base of the compartment.

The bottom of the box has its original teal blue leather covering, and felt pads which protect your furniture from being scratched.


The box is in wonderful condition for its age. There is minor natural wear and minor loss of varnish to the centre of the lid. This is mainly around the finial, from where the lid is lifted up.

The box is structurally sound and free of damage. The interior glass panel has no chips or cracks and the silk and velvet linings are excellent.

There is a little glue residue on the satin and some varnish overspill to the leather covering on the bottom. These are minor flaws which do not spoil the overall appearance of the box.
